Same day couriers are more common everyday, spreading all over the country, due to the rapid increase in demand, pushed by the rising rivalry of e-commerce. In the last ten years big retailers have grown thanks to online shopping, delivering home their products with their own couriers’ fleet. Thanks to their big sales’ volumes, major companies, like Amazon and Walmart, are planning to or have just implemented same day delivery between their service in the most populated areas of the country. Also due to high population density in UK and huge investments in logistic in recent years, they are able to support these services to their customers also if it’s not their core business.
Big retailer brands popularity and efficiency is putting high pressure on traditional courier business. In the last years we have attended a race to the bottom, where couriers companies have decreased their prices to be competitive. Insufficient earnings and lower demand has lead some couriers into administration, even bankrupt in the eventuality of City Link.
As market become more difficult, many courier companies are improving their efficiency, improving their logistic systems and investing in innovation to remain competitive with their rivals. Many are specialised in same day or next day deliveries, taking advantage of all their skills and competences in delivering business. With fast service, couriers can differentiate themselves from the majority of their competitors, but lately biggest retailers have been able to supply the same service for their clients.
However same day couriers can provide a better and dedicated service to their customers, thanks to their knowledge of the business.
